Part of the island in the area of 4 ha, he gave English princess Margaret, sister of Queen Elizabeth II. Here was built a magnificent royal lodge Les Eaux Jolies, princess who adored.
By the 1989 formed by an international team of real owners of the island. They belong to the order of hundreds of luxury villas, that they rent out for huge sums. Naturally, that they themselves are sometimes a great pleasure to rest. Afford to rest on these villas are only the "cream" of society. In addition to the British Royal Family, periodically appeared on the island such international stars as Bryan Adams, Мик Джаггер, Robbie Williams and others. Love this island and Bill Gates.
However, the island can not be called a place for billionaires. In theory, anyone can come here. Anyway, lovely hotel Cotton House is losing its double rooms only on 800 $ per day. A room of the hotel as much as 17 pcs!
To get to the island is by light aircraft, who regularly flies here from the island of Barbados. The flight lasts only 40 minute. There is also a sea links with St. Vincent.
The island is an ecological jewel of the planet. There is not even asphalt. The ride is only permitted on golf carts. Access to one of the nine beaches by foot only. Absolute silence is a strict requirement, which is observed by all. No one should interfere with anyone in solitude and in communion with nature. Visitors can swim in the sea, horseback riding at a local club, admire the birds and plants.
The signs of civilization there are tennis courts and only one bar with the title «Basil's Bar».
